So I've just had a cancellation, the wedding was to have a lovely afternoon tea using my pretty vintage china tea cups, after their wedding ceremony in a marquee. I was shocked to hear that they've scrapped the afternoon tea, as it was too summery for the low temperatures and rain fall expected for this weekend, which I thought was an utter shame. The English pride ourselves on carrying on regardless of the weather, I'm not sure what theme the wedding is having now, maybe mince pies and mulled wine with warm fur coats, probably more fitting with the recent storms. It maybe June and it maybe miserable, but there is nothing better than having a warming cup of tea and piece of cake on a slightly chilly day.

So for bride and grooms wanting a vintage country touch to their summer weddings, wondering what to do in this cooler weather... I say to hell with the weather, this is our summer and if we want it to at least feel like summer we need to don some thermals under our boating jackets and summer dresses.
